New Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright screenshots

How does Layton help Phoenix Wright in court?

Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright are in court in this new batch of Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright screenshots.

As you may already know, Phoenix Wright is defending a girl who has been accused of being a witch and now have have learned how the Professor and the Ace Attorney work together in court.

As Court Records reports, Phoenix Wright knows nothing of the laws of Labyrinth City so Layton gives him the Complete Works On Witches

This enables Phoenix to question on Mahoney's alleged use of spells and the staff she is said to have used to kill her attackers.

Also, as there is no photography in Labyrinth City, so Wright has to use sketches based on the witness' testimony to study the crime scene.

It all sounds very interesting. The Phoenix Wright Vs Ace Attorney release date has been set for 29 November Japanese release date. It hasn't been confirmed for release in the UK yet. Do you want to play it?

    I'd be surprised if there was a single Layton or Ace Attorney fan who doesn't want to play it.
    Looking at these screenshots, I really like how the witnesses have been designed as though they could appear in either game series.
    I really hope it does get localised. It seems a bit wierd that Ace Attorney 5 has already been confirmed for Europe and this one hasn't.

    This game was the reason I bought a 3DS, since it"s literally my two favourite series on the DS coming together.
    So, yeah, I would play it. :)

    Really hope this makes it to Europe after reading so many articles about the game.
    The screen shots look amazing. Even better looking than Miracle Mask

    Of course I want to play it!! What a silly question! =P
    I don't understand why they haven't confirmed it here yet. Layton is always a massive hit here, and there's a big Wright following too. The next AA game is coming here and the next Layton game. It seems a tad silly that this game hasn't been confirmed for the West yet.
